Default Novelist doing research on steamboat life

Hello! I am a historical novelist starting work on a novel set in the 1850s and 1860s with one of the two protagonists a steamboat owner and professional gambler from New Orleans. i am looking into all sorts of material about the steamboats.

One thing I would love to find is a detailed diagram of a steamboat, a large one and very elegant. I saw the interactive diagram here but unless I am missing something it does not identify the different decks. I want something that includes those and where babins would be, etc.

Any suggestions about anything other than the characters and plot <g> will be welcome and could get you a metnion in the acknowledgements.. but only with your permission.
